Clonezilla doesn't restore from image
Posted on 2016-08-21
I have Ubuntu 14.04 with recently installed kernel 4.4
A few month ago I did a backup image with Clonezilla. I have a dual-boot system (Linux/W10). My laptop is connected to USB HD. Ubuntu is on the external USB3 drive. Windows is inside the laptop and on another partition inside the laptop, which is formatted into ext4 there's a Clonezilla image (well, it's the directory and the image is inside of it). So I want to use the image that resides on the internal HD to recreated the whole disk that is external. What happens after I boot into Clonezilla is that I get to the destination screen and then I must choose the source. No restore option, just a saving option and in the end I see my Ubuntu USB3 HD (as a source). I don't how to explain to Clonezilla that I want to restore from image. Unfortunately, there's no way to bluntly choose that option from the start. Clonezilla itself gives you the options it considers correct.
